Social contribution

Aalborg Portland makes an important economic contribution to Society.  With an ambitious strategy and an active development programme, the Group also participates in realising Society’s climate goals.

Focusing on the contribution Aalborg Portland makes to the Danish Society, the value added in 2011 amounted to EUR 75m. Of this, EUR 29m (39%) went to the public sector in the form of VAT, levies, corporation tax and employee income tax. EUR 19m (25%) went to the employees in the form of pay and pension contributions (after tax). As the debt has been reduced to a very low level, a dividend of EUR 26m will be distributed for 2011. The owner has previously abstained from receiving dividend since the acquisition of the Group in 2004.
